The Pincushion has landed. Will you look at this! This sweet little package had a long way to travel. It came all the way from Finland! From what I can figure, that is over 5,000 miles! I am so thrilled to receive such a treasure. Lucky for me that Linda paired me up with Jeanette . Jeanette enjoys a second hobby, wire working. This is a new hobby to me, I've really have never seen anything like it. How clever of her to blend it with her stitching and make such a beautiful, unique and useful pincushion! Not only the pincushion, but she has made this sweet angel also.
Thank you Jeanette, they are both wonderful.
Oh No, I'm not done, there's more! Jeanette is not only talented, she is also generous, look at the cool thread bag she made, she hand stitched my initial on it too. A cute little tin was also inclued. I can't thank you enough, it was worth the wait.
Special thanks to you Jeanette & to Linda for selecting you for me!
Now, back to the normal stuff. When I went to work on Thursday 6/30, one of my workers told me some information regarding one of the participants in the trial. So on Monday I had to appear before the court and share that infomation. The court excused me. Since this was a murder trial I was greatly relieved to be excused. At work, my staff have all been moved as of yesterday. There is still a lot of "stuff" that we need to fit in, and we need to learn new processes and get re-oriented, but it only takes time. I worked my day off yesterday and I was glad I was there to help them. The new work area is so nice. We also had a fellow unit member retire this week after 37 years! Needless to say, I haven't gotten very much sewing done. I have managed to get about 40 blocks finished. There are only 61 blocks so I'm over half way there. I hope to get started putting it together tomorrow, even if all of the blocks aren't finished. I just don't have a space big enough to lay it all out. Hope all is well with you and your world. Everything is moving along here! xoxmar
